Education Above All’s Al Fakhoora programme, in partnership with UNDP, is excited to host the first educational conference of its kind, designed and led completely by students – our beneficiaries, who are directly experiencing the reality of COVID-19 as an additional challenge to the already complex situations in which they live.

The conference, held on the 29th and 30th of June 2020, will include Palestinian students from Gaza and the West Bank, and Syrian refugees from across the MENA region.

Through a series of pivotal topics, we will discuss various aspects of Higher Education in the MENA region, specifically for marginalised youth. The panels will endeavour to highlight four main perspectives: that of policymakers, INGOs, educational experts, and the youth themselves.

The hope is that, together, we can discuss ways in which we can prepare for what will come next, and ensure that marginalised youth, already affected by conflict, are equipped to face the uncertain and possible.
